About Us

Starting a business isn't easy, so why not utilize every resource at your disposal? We aim to provide everything you need to make a good idea into reality.

We partner early and are comfortable with the early instabilities of startups.

There are many factors that determine whether a business becomes a success: a good idea, organization, timing, and execution. However, when time comes to scaling and questions become more difficult to answer - we want to be there along your side and are confident in our ability to take on the rough imperfections of a new venture.

Azure Ventures Clubs is a venture advisory that accelerates startups in and around the Los Angeles area. We work with startups with clear go-to-market trajectories as pre-seed investors and strategic advisors. Each semester, we select a limited cohort of 2 to 4 early-stage startups through various recruitment channels. Azure Ventures Clubs directly provides grant funding to these businesses, accelerating them towards revenue generation.


By providing grants to early-stage startups, Azure Ventures Clubs allows entrepreneurs to drive their startups forward on the road to generate revenue. By increasing the liquidity available in the USC startup space, we pushentrepreneurs to create their own ventures. Our grants introduce founders to the venture space, preparing them for investment rounds; this allows startup teams to optimize expenditures while making the most impact on their company, an important aspect when raising capital.
